I randomly found this on the shelves when I was looking for something else today.  Hopefully I’ll get to scan some of it before I have to take it back.

can anyone tell me what this is about? [abastract dolmaenthusiast qasaweh sikoot]

"Black thugs in Cairo: Most of the crimes against activists and reporters are from South Sudan" - Sisi and his media outlets are trying to vilify people from Sudan for crimes “against journalists”, when in fact Sisi’s regime is known for its violent crimes against free journalism and against anti-regime activists. Anti-blackness is global - governments (and state media) continue to criminalize black peoples so that their juntas are able to conceal their own crimes and atrocities. 
To summarize, the article is criminalizing refugees (which Egyptian media is known for). The first line of the article says that African refugees are criminal gangs who bring violence to Ain Sham, Nasr City, and to all the residents. The bitch author said that these “criminal refugees” need to be dealt with seriously in order to “preserve the reputation of Egypt’s international place, adversely affect tourism, and the country’s national income”. They admitted that most of these “thugs” are in their teens, then they characterized how these “thugs” look like: distinctive lengthwise clothing and gold and silver chains around their necks… Unbelievable.
Fucking ridiculous and nauseating.
Full shitty, racist article here.

An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“[video]

SMFH… Disgusting…

Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.

this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?

Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.

This gives me shivers every time.

Did someone name Wonder Woman as a joke?  I’m pretty sure the ACTUAL name of the woman in this video is Huwaida Arraf, co founder of the ISM and currently a lawyer in Ramallah.

I know the term “PoC” and its other forms have turned into identities used to excused/generalize people’s struggles, but i still strongly believe in what the term was intended for: creating cross-racial/ethnic solidarity against White supremacy and others forms of oppression/systemic violence which affect us all (though in different ways).

Pizza dog’s cool and all but Cerberus doesn’t get enough love.

  • Mavel Fans: DC doesn't have a Wonder Woman film but Marvel has a Raccoon with a gun!
  • Me: Marvel just erased Janet Van Dyne and Cassie Lang from the Ant-Man film, the latter is the sole reason why Scott Lang became a hero.
  • Marvel Fans: Captain America is Now Falcon! FIRST BLACK GUY AS CAP!
  • Me: First of all, Isaiah Bradley. Secondly, this is the same writer who killed off Sharon Carter just to make Captain America sad.
  • Marvel Fans: Thor is now a female! DIVERSITY!
  • Me: Sif and Valkyrie are nowhere right now, Avengers Arena just nuked the teenage heroes who were well liked, Amazing X-Men writers just killed off a character they brought into a story because "She would have solved the problem too quickly", and almost great books that tries to be different is bombing in sales like Superior Foes of Spider-Man and New Warriors.
  • Marvel Fans: On your left DC!
  • Me: Man, people are gonna be mad if Anya Corazon does die in Spider-Verse.
Political and economic relations between Québec and Israel have developed in major ways over the past decade. A process facilitated by the Parti libéral du Québec, with open complicity from the PQ, neoliberal colonial links articulated clearly in growing business collaborations and corporate military connections.
In 2008, the former Liberal finance minister Raymond Bachand lead an important political delegation to Israel, reported as having over forty people onboard, with both corporate and academic representatives from Québec, also including representatives from the FTQ’s Fonds de la solidarité. Bachand’s trip finalized a new formal economic and technology focused bilateral accord, existing in parallel to the Canada-Israel bilateral free trade agreement signed back in 1997, recently expanded under the Conservatives. […]
Beyond academic research, Montréal military corporations, or “defense technology” companies, best articulate the disturbing face of Québec’s significant corporate role in bolstering the very Israeli military machinery that has bombarded Gaza and killed over 2200 Palestinians over the past months. 
CAE corporation in Montréal, that specializes in flight simulators and “real-time operation systems” has secured multiple contracts involving the Israeli military, including a project with the military company Elbit Systems, to train Israeli military personnel to operate “next-generation combat aircraft.” Another CAE project focuses on operating systems for Israeli air force Black Hawk utility helicopters, corporate military work being done in the heart of Québec, CAE’s ominous buildings can clearly be seen from the Chomedey autoroute in Montréal.
Additionally the engines for the Bell “cobra” helicopter, nicknamed the “viper” on the Israeli Air Force website, are produced in the Montréal region by Pratt & Whitney Canada. Also the Israeli military uses helicopters produced in Mirabel, Quebec by Bell Helicopter Textron Canada, a company also represented on a recent Conservative governmental delegation to Israel.
In the context of the Israeli bombardment and military attack on Gaza this summer, that most human rights organizations articulate as including numerous war crimes, its critically important that progressive forces in Québec examine and take action around our own complicity with Israeli war crimes.
Certainly as politicians have been inking deals between Québec and Israel, a grassroots movement in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for freedom has been growing on the streets of Québec.
Support in Québec for the the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is significant and growing within social justice movements. In response to the 2005 Palestinian call to build a BDS movement, modeled after the international solidarity movement with South African resistance to apartheid, Québec student groups such as Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante (ASSÉ) and workers unions like the Montréal region of the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN) have voted to support the movement. In Montréal a couple years ago 500 artists signed an open letter supporting the global BDS movement. 
As support for the BDS movement in Québec grows let’s consider focusing more grassroots political energy toward the critical manifestations of Québec complicity with systems of Israeli apartheid. Clearly Québec complicity with Israeli apartheid is rooted in our own history of violent colonialism that is foundational to the contemporary political, social and economic framework of both Canada and Québec. 
Today Québec’s corporate complicity with Israeli military colonialism is clear, numerous corporations are openly and directly involved in empowering the Israeli military machinery. While the academic links with institutions like the Technion illustrate the important role that academic links play in both normalizing apartheid systems but also creating the technology that empowers the violent Israeli military machine. Current neoliberal inspired Liberal leader Philippe Couillard has made no indications of stepping away from these deep policy links with Israeli apartheid.
Québec’s political and corporate complicity with Israeli apartheid is clearly manifested in this economic and technological bilateral agreement, bound by the economic of neoliberalism and the violence of colonialism. An accord that brings together all the different targets for a possible inspiring grassroots local campaign to boost the growing global BDS movement and unravel our own deep complicity with Israeli apartheid at home.

Quebec isn’t alone in this of course; both the federal goverment and the EU signed FTAs with Israel in the last 10 years, but it’s good to see it all detailed like this.
